COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Southern English style Nut Brown Ale with a bit of chocolate character to it. Dark in color, but light in body, and leaning toward the sweet malty side. You'll really have to look for the hops in this one.

Draft @ The Headkeeper. Pours a nice, clear brown color, slight wisp of head. Aroma is malt and touches of caramel. Malt, nut and caramel/toffee are present in the flavor profile. finish is malty and has just a touch of oilyness to it.

Draught @ The Headkeeper: This one pours a fairly opaque brown, with almost no head on it. The aroma is mainly malty, with a whiff of nuttiness in there also. The flavor is very similar to the aroma. Matly, with some nuttiness and a hint of chocolate. Tasty, and an easy drinker.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2009
Sample at East End. Hazy brown pour with a medium tan head. Malty aroma with some caramel, but not much else going on. Noble hop characteristics that give it a lagery feel. Malty flavor with a bit of nuts, a hint of roast and more of that lagery character.

Cybercat (5123) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Comes out of the tap a rich warm brown, barely translucent, with a fairly thick pale tan head. Aroma is rich and malty with hints of cinnamon, smoke and caramel. Flavor is mainly malty and has nutty, smoky and spicy tones - one can really taste how the malt is roasted. Texture is smooth and very pleasing.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Cask: Aroma of graham crackers, nuts, wood, malts, and moist potting soil. Poured very dark brown in color with a medium to large, thin, rocky, wispy, oatmeal colored head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Lightly sweet flavor. Tastes of nuts, wood, malts, and some chocolate. Medium body. Chewy and chalky texture. No carbonation. Nutty and malty finish.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Cask @ Zenoís. Hazy brown body with no head. The nose is light with some raisins, dough and some caramel. The flavor is lightly sweet, light bitter with raisins, toffee and watery tea. Medium/light body is thin with light carbonation.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2008
Cask @ Zenoís. Brown, no head. Mild nose of chocolate malt and bread, but itís extremely faint and very bland smelling so itís difficult to judge this one at all. Sadly the flavor isnít any better - weak, pallid, empty, with a watery texture as well. Disappointing.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 5, 2008
Cask @ Zenoís. Pours a slightly watery, dark brown color; minimal head with a perimeter of medium-sized bubbles. Basic tea and wet malts in the aroma; not a lot here at all. Basic, watery malts and a slight tea-like astringency; again, reserved and watery throughout; very bland brown. Medium finish, which shows more flavor than the rest of this: chocolate, saltine crackers, and some lingering tea.
